Whether you’re a book enthusiast or a casual reader, the spine is what you’ll see first, as this is how books are usually displayed in libraries or bookstores. The “spine out” arrangement of stacking books maximizes limited shelf space and can help sell the book itself. Book covers may showcase the content, but the spine is what attracts a reader first. When your spine and book cover are designed with cohesion, your book can achieve its sales potential, ultimately grabbing your target’s interest. If you’re in the process of designing the spine of your book and want to see how it looks in real life, you may want to try a spine mockup.

Read on to see our selection of spine mockup templates which you can use to showcase your creative design.
